CHELSEA v Schalke: Champions League Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Wednesday 17 September Kick-off: 19:45 Here we go then, our first Champions League game of the season sees us at home to Schalke. We’re no strangers to the German side of course, having played them a few times now and most recently beating them 3-0 twice in last season’s campaign. This [...]

CHELSEA v Atletico Madrid: Champions League Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Wednesday, 30 April Kick-off: 19:45 BST Having clearly upset the media and pundits alike with our ‘shock’ win over Liverpool at the weekend, unlike the league leaders (who prefer to take it easy midweek) it’s back to Europe for us with our Champions League semi-final second leg at home to Atletico [...]

CHELSEA v PSG: Champions League Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Tuesday, 8 April Kick-off: 19:45 BST After a convincing win against Stoke in the Premier League, tonight sees the return of the Champions League and a visit from PSG in the quarter final second leg. Going into this game 3-1 down from the first leg obviously isn’t the best starting point [...]

PSG v CHELSEA: Champions League Preview

Venue: Parc des Princes Date: Wednesday 2 April Kick-off: 19:45 BST After a dire performance against Crystal Palace at the weekend we could probably do without a trip to France to face PSG right now, particularly a PSG side with the likely pairing of Edinson Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic running us ragged anyway. That’s just [...]

CHELSEA v Galatasaray: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: 18 March 2014 Kick-off: 19.45 GMT With Chelsea’s lack of strike force this season, there’ll have been plenty of times we’ve longed for Didier Drogba back but none of us would have opted to see him back in someone else’s colours. That’s how it is though because tonight we see our [...]

Steaua 0-4 Chelsea: More Cruise Than Crisis

Last time out in Europe we had a bad night, so this was one of them clichéd ‘must win’ games.  As it turns out, we didn’t just win it, we did so emphatically with a few more positives for Jose Mourinho to tuck under his belt as the work he’s put in (and the stick [...]

Benfica v CHELSEA: Europa League Final Preview

Venue: Amsterdam Arena Date: Wednesday, 15 May Kick-off: 19:45 GMT   Here we are then, not quite last year’s European final but a European final nonetheless and we won’t turn our noses up at the prospect of adding a bit more silverware to our ever-growing cabinet.  We’ve done the important business in securing a Champions [...]

FC Basel v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: St-Jakob Park Date: Thursday 25 April Kick-off: 20:05 BST In stark contrast to the dizzy heights of the semi final we were in last season, this time it’s not Barcelona in the Champions League, but Basel in the Europa League – what is the same though, is that again, we’re the last Premier League [...]

Chelsea 2012: What A Year!

Bizarre really that one of Chelsea’s worst years should also be the year in which we achieved the unimaginable but that’s how it stands. From the frustration of yet another manager’s sacking following some pretty dire form that saw us slip out of the top four to the hope of resurgence with the interim appointment [...]

CHELSEA v Nordsjaelland: Champions League Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Weds 5th December Kick-off: 19.45 GMT   We might be the Champions of Europe but if we don’t get a win at home to Nordsjaelland tonight, we’ll be the first Champions of Europe to go out at the group stages! Mind you, we need more than just a win because we [...]
